Mumbai: In a horrifying incident that has come to light, a 21-year-old man allegedly sexually abused his 16-year-old sister and impregnated her. Following the incident, the man was arrested by the Mumbai Police.

On Saturday, the girl was feeling unwell and had to be rushed to Cama Hospital at Dhobitalao by her father.

“After an examination, the doctor revealed that the girl was two months pregnant. Her parents were shocked when she revealed that her brother had sexually abused her around August,” Times of India quoted assistant police inspector Raju Pachorkar as saying.

A case of rape has also been registered against the brother under the POCSO Act.

In an earlier incident which took place in October, an ATM security guard in Thane was arrested after he allegedly raped a four-year-old girl at a creche. The incident occurred after the girl’s mother left her daughter at a daycare facility.

The 42-year-old accused identified as Dashrath Kamble worked as a security guard at a nearby ATM. Seeing the girl, he went to her creche and asked her to accompany him on the pretext of teaching her something. He then allegedly raped the child at a secluded spot in the premises and left, an official said.
